Class AdvancedSearchAction

public class AdvancedSearchAction
extends BaseAction

Struts action class that corresponds to the search results page. Used for requests to "/".

The execute method of this class retrieves search results from the lucene index and then grabs the appropriate collection of products from the database to make sure all the product information is available for display. One could display the results directly from Lucene as it does have id, code, name, description, etc. It puts it in the request scope for use by the view layer. Given a AdvancedSearchForm with its searchString property populated, it creates and initializes an instance of ProductList. It then invokes LuceneSearcher.getSearchList(com.softslate.commerce.businessobjects.product.SearchList) to load the product list information from the database. It puts the initialized ProductList object in the request scope as an attribute with the name "productList".
